The Best Brunches in London

09/02/2016 12:15 | Updated 09 February 2016

London has hit peak brunch, with every restaurant trying to come up with a new, innovative menu to keep healthy eaters, foodies and bottomless drinks aficionados happy. I went on a quest to find London's best brunch menus to date. My waistline won't thank me, but you sure will.

The Peruvian - Lima Floral

Garrick Street's very own Peruvian offers one of the healthiest and best-value brunches in the Capital. The £18 Andean breakfast is your best bet, giving you the chance to feast on Peruvian delicacies such as quinoa porridge, pancakes and suckling pig brioche buns.

Asia De Cuba's Chino-Latino brunch, hosted within St. Martin's Lane Hotel's stunning dining room, will make you forget the London rain with a selection of Cuban treats.

Asia De Cuba's brunch allows you to pick either a cocktail (£48) or champagne and cocktail (£70) bottomless brunch. Devised by Cuban-born executive chef Luis Pous, the brunch is made of a selection of starters, a main and bottomless doughnuts.

Starters include mini Cuban sandwiches, shrimp churros and ceviche de pescado, all served in a cigar box.

The Oriental - Flesh and Buns

One of the best brunch options in the Capital - and one of the most dangerous if bottomless Prosecco is what you're after. For only £46 Seven Dials' Flesh and Buns give you a cocktail on arrival, three small plates, two buns, a dessert and bottomless Prosecco.

Both the Korean fried wings and the crispy fried squid, as well as Flesh & Buns' aubergine miso bun, are the menu's strongest points. Top that with marshmallow s'mores to melt on the flame and make into a cookie sandwich and you will never want to leave.

Brunch: £46 per person

The 3 South Place Hotel Bellini brunch offers some of the best home-made Bircher muesli you'll ever try as well as a killer Cumberland sausage and mash with caramelised onion and sage gravy. Just like any dish on the brunch menu, the sausages are a twist on a classic that doesn't disappoint.

Classy, friendly and laid back, the South Place Hotel is your perfect boutique brunch, helping you relax without weighing too much on your pockets.

Brunch at Tom's Kitchen's Canary Wharf restaurant takes you away from the hustle-and-bustle of Central London with a different take on brunch classics. Start with Tom's Kitchen signature dishes like the chicken liver and foie gras parfait with chutney and brioche or the spicy crab cake with cucumber and chilli salsa.

Make sure you make enough room for the Eggs Benedict: replacing the ham hock with crispy bacon, Tom's Kitchen's eggs are cooked to perfection.

Bourne & Hollingsworth Buildings' does a great job with brunch classics, but it's their decadent French toast dessert that you won't find anywhere else. A triumph of carbs, berries and cream, their French toast adds to the restaurant's buzzing, colonial and classy atmosphere.

French toast: £6.50-£7.50
